Shadow Eyes
By Dusty Crabtree
Published July 15th 2012

He took a deep breath and slowly turned around to face me sitting speechlessly on my bed. His eyes were impassioned with both fervor and anguish as he approached me and spoke in a quavering voice. “You’re also beautiful and captivating. But I don’t need to look at your bedroom to understand that. You hooked me the first moment I laid eyes on you. And you’ve kept me hanging on your string ever since.” He sounded almost resentful for me somehow luring him in, which seemed absurd as it was truly the other way around. 

When he finally reached me, I could see a fire blazing in his eyes that was both irresistible and painful to watch. He grabbed both of my arms and snatched me off my bed, staring intently into my eyes before crashing his mouth against mine in the most passionate, frenzied kiss I had ever felt or witnessed. His lips and tongue had an electric charge that shocked me, and I nearly burst as potent lust pulsated through my suddenly weakened body. All too soon, his lips parted from mine and he gazed at me with pain and guilt radiating from his core through his eyes, making him tremble.
